Indiana Form WH-4

This form will help Gusto determine how much state income tax needs to be withheld from your employees. This form is also used by Indiana to determine county taxes for the entire year. 

Indiana uses an employee's location as of January 1st to determine applicable taxes for the entire year. As a payroll administrator of a company that has a location in Indiana, you'll want to verify that this information is correct in Gusto prior to running your first payroll of the year. 

If an employee is planning on moving on or before January 1st, you will need to update their address in Gusto. If they are moving after January 1st, you should continue to use their original address. If the address has in fact changed, the employee may see a different Indiana county tax on their paystubs in 2016.
